Prevention of in vitro oxidation of low density lipoproteins (LDL) by amaranth peptides released by gastrointestinal digestion
The objective of this work was to analyze the capacity of amaranth peptides generated by gastrointestinal digestion to prevent LDL oxidation. A simulated gastrointestinal digest from protein isolate (Id); Id fractions ...
Effect Of In Vitro Digestion On Bioactive Compounds And Antioxidant Activity Of Common Bean Seed Coats

Amaranth peptides from simulated gastrointestinal digestion: antioxidant activity against reactive species
We evaluated the capacity of simulated gastrointestinal digests or alcalase hydrolysates of protein isolates from amaranth to scavenge diverse physiologically relevant reactive species. The more active hydrolysate was ...
Digestive morphology and enzyme activity in the Andean toad Bufo spinulosus: Hard-wired or flexible physiology?
(Elsevier Inc., 2005)
Gut plasticity is a trait with implications on animal performance. However, and despite their importance as study models in physiology, research on gut flexibility in amphibians is scarce. In the present work, we analyse ...

Gastrointestinal changes associated to heart failure
Over the last decade, several studies were conducted on the gastrointestinal changes associated to chronic heart failure. This article presents a literature review on the physiopathology and clinical consequences of ...
The gastrointestinal tract as a key target organ for the health promoting effects of dietary proanthocyanidins
(Frontiers media SA, 2017)
Proanthocyanidins (PACs) are polymers of flavan-3-ols abundant in many vegetable foods and beverages widely consumed in the human diet. There is increasing evidence supporting the beneficial impact of dietary PACs in the ...
A novel biomagnetic instrumentation with four magnetoresistive sensors to evaluate gastric motility.
A novel instrumentation using anisotropic magnetoresistive (AMR) sensors associated with magnetic coils excitation was developed to evaluate gastrointestinal tract motility parameters. The susceptometer has four sensors ...
